Draught at kitchen next door. Noticed a lot of batch variance with this beer, quickly rating a good one. Big banana clove doesn’t come off as plasticky or fake like many American interpretations; legitimately Bavarian in character. If its a good batch I prefer this to dry dock hefe, but that only seems to happen like half of he time. Had a pint at Prost recently that was average to below and noticeably different, hopefully bill and the crew can become more consistent.

Draft half pint at Falling Rock Tap House. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a finger of white head. Notes of banana, clove, wheat, lemon, bread, and grass. Light-bodied, with a sweet, clean mouthfeel and moderate to medium carbonation. Nice and summery. Holy cow, this is an awesome example of the style. I loved it. Can’t recommend it enough.

swesson (174) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Maybe it’s the banana smell...I was put off by the smell. Kind of sulphury banana. If that doesn’t sound good to you, then we probably would agree on the rating of this beer.

Growler. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Smells like cloves and tropical fruits. Tastes very creamy, nice clove spice, pineapple, guava, very fruity. Smooth, clean, yummy. Very good.
